Who We Are
Laser focused on creating, building and innovating, our members fuel each other’s passions through killer learning and educational events, meaningful experience shares, accountability partnerships and once in a lifetime experiences.
With 85 members accounting for more than $1.4 billion in revenue and more than 6,300 employees, EO Detroit is not a club, a networking group nor a marketing “target” —it’s a business, family, self and community game changer.
EO Core Values
Our values drive our actions and members. They reflect our desire to become better business leaders, better community members and, ultimately, better people.
TRUST AND RESPECT
We listen with an open mind and appreciation for different points of view. We offer a safe space where you can always be your complete, authentic self.
THIRST FOR LEARNING
Our curiosity is insatiable. We always pursue new ideas and perspectives, at every opportunity, because we always have a burning need to grow.
THINK BIG, BE BOLD
We innovate, take risks and see opportunity in challenges. We want to make a difference beyond ourselves – for the people in our lives, for a better future for everyone.
TOGETHER WE GROW
We are committed to each other’s growth and well-being. While we represent diverse cultures, countries, religions and backgrounds, EO binds us all together.
We are here to help each of our members achieve transformational growth in their lives. Whether that is a 10x growth in your business, or a far more personal transformation—the possibilities are infinite.
We help you achieve this through life-enhancing connections, as part of a network of like-minded leaders, dedicated to helping each other succeed. That means real conversations, personal and professional support, and ultimately learning together. So that each member can accelerate their growth and reach above and beyond their personal limits. Because together we grow.
Our purpose, ambition, strategic plan, brand positioning and visual identity all reflect where we are today and will help us build a better tomorrow together. We evolved our values, keeping what remains true to us and letting go of what no longer fitted. Our values speak to who we are as an organization. They help define our tone of voice and how we speak to our audience.
Our values also help us with decision-making. By keeping our values in mind as we continue to grow and evolve, we ensure that we always stay true to our brand.
